Great Ghostly Tour

The way the host brought everything to life. Very well done and left a lot to the imagination. Kept everyone encapsulated while he described the events. Better than expected.

Host deserved an Oscar. It’s one thing to give information but to engage everyone the way he did was fantastic.

Great evening walk

Very enjoyable and engaging. Lots of jokes. Spooky at times, it’s a shame that noises from passers by drowned out the voice and build up Suggestion: potable lapel mic
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Hi Dipti, thank you for your lovely review. Unfortunately the weekend revellers of York do sometimes get a little rowdy, but that is a rare occurrence. I have certainly never been told I need a microphone before (usually the opposite!) so that's a new one.

Excellent ghost tour

Host had excellent knowledge of the city paired with being an excellent storyteller. Made it real and relatable. The host was also brilliant at handling people who had drank a little too much. Would definitely recommend.

Thanks Dawn, you're too kind. Yes, those Saturday night revellers keep me on my toes sometimes!

The guide was good and knew how to keep you interested in what he was saying. He had the right personality for the job.

Thank you very much, to loosely quote Liam Neeson.. I have a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career, skills that make me able to keep people interested in what I'm saying.

Good
Rhodri_O
, Dec 2021
Really good host. Some of the stories were a bit boring, not so much about ghosts as death, but some were really gripping. Could be better if they went to a graveyard or had scarier stories.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Thanks for the review Rhodri, I very much appreciate that you found me to be a good host, but sorry to hear that you think some of the stories are a bit boring and not scary. Unfortunately there aren't any graveyards in the city centre, but there are plenty to visit outside of my tour and they're definitely scary places to visit, with no lighting or footpaths!
